NYC coming soon!

I will blog about NYC as soon as I get caught up on rest, sleep, my tv that i missed, and all this cheerleading stuff :)

Until then, I was just browsing around at recipes and trying to make my grocery list/dinner agenda for this week and realized I dont have Noble Pig on my blog list!!! I am adding it right now. I get recipes from here ALL THE TIME and I've never made one that was bad!!!

Some of my favorites: Maple Mustard Glazed Chicken, Cheesy Shell-Stuffed Shells, Potato, Bacon, and Sour Cream Frittata , Baby Bow-Ties with Peas and Ham , and many many more!!!!!

Check it out!! :)

i still got it?

i can't believe im actually putting this up for the world to see .. but i guess im a little proud of myself for still being able to "move" :) we did this dance our senior year at a pep rally and LOVED it and sweet Katie gave me the music for it last week so I am teaching it to the girls this year for them to do at the homecoming pep rally. filmed myself doing it at practice to put it online for the girls to use as a resource... they still dont have it down yet, so dont judge. it's gonna be great! :)

in other news... jordan and i are leaving for new york thursday morning at 6 am!!! its only my 2nd time going... things im looking forward to:
-going to late night with jimmy fallon (i watch it EVERY NIGHT) so i cant wait to be there!
- staten island ferry to see the statue of liberty
- visiting the Top of the standard hotel (aka the boom boom room where celebrities are spotted)
- shopping!!!!
- going to southern hospitality (jt's restaurant)
- meeting all of my great friend, Brantley's friends
- visiting the MOMA, the met, and the museum of natural history
- running around times square

and last but not least.... for all of you who've known me since middle school, you understand how huge this is...

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE is hosting SNL this weekend with musical guest Lady Gaga... that means they will BOTH be in town. I am GOING to find him, I just know it :) We may get into the SNL After Party Saturday night (brantley used to work for SNL) AND we're going to justin's restaurant one night... i think my chances are pretty good, folks!!

first week...over!

first week of practice is complete.


i can BARELY hold my eyes open as im typing, i am so exhausted. but i am happy to share a couple pictures with you and let you know... i am really excited for this year!! We're already making leaps and bounds from the horror stories i've head about last year and i am so excited for these girls. i dont even know them all that well (yet) but i can tell you that the passion is there. they are pumped! it's great to see :)

here's our first team picture:

here's little C and me after a LONG three days of tryouts and the "you made it!" party:

here's after the first practice:

can you tell thats the only shirt we have right now? dont worry. i didnt make them wear it every day this week. only monday and thursday :) the rest of the shirts are ordered and should be in next week! cant wait for yall to see them! they are fun. Cathleen and I have been having the best time picking out everything. We're getting TWO new uniforms this year (which is incredible) we got to pick those out tonight and the girls had their fitting. We're super excited about the uniforms.. one is bringing back old school Eastside like we're trying to do! woot! We've also been having a hay day picking out shoes, poms, bloomers, warmups, and everything in between!

You long time followers will be happy (and proud of me, i hope) to learn that i have been SLOWLY but SURELY weening off the ambien! it has been a long and difficult process but for two weeks i managed to take only half a pill. Then Saturday night I didn't take one at all, and since then I've only taken 1/4 of a pill, which is a teeny tiny nibble of a pill. Go Me!!! I will feel so relieved to rid that of my lifeeeee! speaking of... maybe right now i will close my computer, and not take one at all, bc i can feel my eyes closing on their own! i'll let you know if i succeeded tomorrow!

<3 and cheer! :) (im so clever)
